Hisashi Iwakuma threw the fifth no hitter in Mariners history, walking 3 Orioles and striking out 7, sealing the 3-0 final.

Clayton Kershaw was perfect into the 6th and finished with 8 innings of 3 hit shutout ball, walking no Washington batter and striking out 8, earning the 3-0 decision for the Dodgers.

Aaron Hicks went 4 for 5 with a homer, four runs scored and a circus catch in centerfield to help the Twins demolish the Rangers, 11-1.

J. T. Realmuto went 3 for 5 with 3 runs scored, 6 RBI, a triple and a grand slam to help Miami win a 14-6 laugher over Boston.

They all owned baseball on August 12, 2015.

Earning 1/2 WOBS on losing efforts:

Kevin Gausman pitched 7 strong innings, allowing 6 hits and striking out 8 Mariners. He was up against Iwakuma’s no hitter, however, as the Mariners topped hitless Baltimore, 3-0.

Jordan Zimmermann allowed just 2 hits, 1 run and 1 walk over 7 innings, striking out 9 Dodgers batters along the way. He would get a hard luck loser as Washington was shutout 3-0.

David Ortiz reached base 4 times, including a pair of homers, scoring 3 and driving in 3 in the Red Sox 14-6 blow out loss at the hands of the Marlins.

Paul Goldschmidt got on base 4 times with a double and a triple and a pair of RBI. He would strikeout in the 8th, however and the Diamondbacks rally fell a run short to the Phillies, 7-6.

So Let’s factor in yesterday’s heroics into the year long WOB standings
